The Federal Communications Commission has released an order that will require schools to educate students about Internet safety in order to comply with the federal E-Rate program, which provides funding for schools to achieve online connectivity.
The requirement comes from language in the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act, which was signed into law as a part of the Broadband Data Improvement Act in October 2008.
Globally schools face the same issues. Is legislation the way to solve it? Perhaps.
